Welcome to this month’s LinkedIn news from TheProfile.Company. Our aim is to summarise news and views from the web to help you build your business on LinkedIn.
It’s been an interesting month on LinkedIn with quite a bit of controversy. In the last year, Candice Galek has been drawing a great deal of attention to herself with some questionable LinkedIn posts that are now drawing the world’s attention. In fact, her antics have been covered by several Forbes magazine articles and, so the story goes, has brought her so much business that her sales are booming. (Read article below)
Clever posts can do wonders for your business if they are easy to like, well written and have a photo. Below are some examples I spotted over the last month and the elements that make them stand out. Enjoy…

This month, Anthony Brown’s profile went live. I first met Anthony when he was the nominated speaker at Portsmouth Business Exchange. What struck me most about him was his passion for what he did and his mission to set a standard in his industry. A message like this is powerful on LinkedIn as it sets you apart and helps build rapport
with prospects. I wanted to help him convey this on LinkedIn so I approached him after his talk. He understood the value of LinkedIn immediately and we set about building his profile.

Here is what Anthony said about working with TheProfile.Company
“I am elated with Naomi’s work. Her attention to detail and keen ear led to a ‘right first time’ answer for my LinkedIn profile and this level of care was possibly only surpassed by her patience with my questions about all the different areas of the profile at our initial meeting. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Naomi and her company to anyone else looking to find the best solution for their profile presence on LinkedIn.”
